    I'm assuming that is the max allowable.

    If you want to be comfy, probably closer to 10.

    It looks like its recommending 40 - 65 PSI. Which is nuts. I run 42mm nordic spikes, at around that.
    A big boy did it, and ran away.

    65 psi would probably be a very interesting ride. Especially if it was on a nice hard pack, rooty trail.
    Flotilla or Buffet.

    It is a Vee Rubber Mission.

    The pressure range is WAY high.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    I run my BFL's on UMA 90's at 7.5 in fresh snow conditions and they are great. If you did run the pressures as high as the tire is recommending get a very thick gel saddle.......lol
